Very nice new entries into the field of silver art medals are the two issued by our company under the auspices of the Wildlife Conservation Society. This non-profit organization, based at the world famous Bronx Zoo, is deeply involved in the Bison Restoration Project. The two medals, each of .9999 silver, one weighing an ounce and the other a half-ounce, are a tribute to what we hope Congress will designate as the official United States mammal. Certainly the bison, popularly called the buffalo, is a pure American symbol. Show an image of one to a European, Asian, African, or anyone else, and the United States of America comes to mind. The medals are in beautiful deep mirror Proof finish. As soon as I complete this commentary I am going to order one each for my own collection.
